Additional info: I just noticed that if I type "HASN'T" in caps, auto-correct does not change it to "HANS'T".
And to be clear, the quotation marks in these entries are to designate the text only, they are not a part of what I'm typing into Pages when the problem occurs.

I'm having this problem too, and similar problems with other phrases, and it's so annoying!! How can this just be a mistake in Pages??
Interesting question! I am sure you will be fascinated by this discussion from 2011:-)

I had already tried your suggestion with no luck.
But your suggestion got me to reading this thread again and I followed the link Tom Gewecke provided to the 2011 thread.
In that thread was the comment that to get your suggestion to work, it wasn't sufficient to type "hans't" into the auto-correct box. ** I had to COPY "hans't" from the Pages document and PASTE it into the auto-correct box. **
Now, when I type "hasn' ", the Automatically use spell check suggestions changes it to "hans' ". Then, when I type the final "t", auto-correct changes the resulting "hans't" to the desired "hasn't".
On the one hand, problem solved. Thanks for the help.
On the other hand, I've got to say I'm disappointed. This is the kind of Windows crap that I left Microsoft products to avoid. It's very discouraging to see Apple ignore this obvious bug.

Well I don't have to copy and paste into Auto Correction. For me it worked typing the words in AutoCorrection and then it work when writing the text, as soon as I added the space.
